The first iteration, titled 72 Years to the Moon, was an exploration of the screen as a site and as a stage where chance happenings and material studies collide. Performed in Philadelphia in March 2014, a 6x8 foot cutout was created in the center of a twenty-foot long wall, mimicking the proportions of a projected image. In front of the wall and some distance back sat the audience. Behind the wall were four performers and 15 custom built motors responsible for manipulating objects to pass across the “screen” which the audience could both see as well as hear. Over a 25 minute period, balls pass, arrows fly, grids are created and collapse, and abstract forms dance across the visual field, reminiscent of the illusionistic feat of pioneering filmic experimentations and early lens-based technologies.
